Betting big on your future

For all that it is talked about, automation is not always well understood

Automation is often cast in a single, harsh light as a taker of jobs. At the same time, it’s also held up as a quick fix to operational issues and an easy path to lower costs. We understand that automation is neither as ominous nor as easy as these portrayals suggest. Our strategy relies on the powerful combination of automation and AI, focused on the needs of enterprises. This AI-powered automation strategy rests on four key strengths:

  • We are the only company to offer a single platform for business and IT automation.
  • We embrace unstructured data and know how to solve large-scale problems.
  • We pull data from an ecosystem of sources, and we run on any cloud.
  • We keep the human impact of automation at the center of all we do.


Automation is about giving us more time and helping you use your day differently to focus on the things that matter most to you. Used wisely, automation can make us all more productive, more capable people.

By using AI and automated tools, companies can make sense of that unstructured data. IBM has patents in our portfolio specifically for this, and we can automate many more processes across your enterprise than vendors that lack these advanced capabilities — so you can reclaim your time with intelligent automation.
